Get a new gpu. If you get a 7770 or higher you get a free game(or two(or three)).

What motherboard do you have?

Out of the things you listed i'd get a new CPU or GPU

Your RAM/HDD is fine

Wasn't sure whether you meant 500 for the card, but I definitely suggest the 7970

HD 7770 is NOT an upgrade from the HD 6850.

Any i5 + ~$100 Z77 mobo + GTX 760 will get you what you're looking for.
